College Honored for Excellence in Transfer

Oct 20, 2017

This week (of October 13, 2017), the Campaign for College Opportunity announced the names of nine California Community Colleges and four California State University (CSU) campuses for significantly increasing the number of students earning an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT), enrolling those students at a CSU with junior status, and graduating ADT earners with a bachelor's degree.

The majority of California students who go to college attend community college with the majority of them hoping to transfer to a four-year university. Unfortunately, only 4% of community college students transfer after two years.

That is why in 2010, together with then-Senator Alex Padilla, the Campaign for College Opportunity sponsored historic transfer reform legislation that created a clearer path for students to earn an associate degree and get guaranteed admission as juniors to the CSU system. Since then, over 69,000 students have earned an ADT and of those that enrolled in the CSU, they earned their bachelor's degree almost twice as fast as other transfer students!

The following thirteen colleges and universities will be commended on December 5th in Los Angeles for excellence in implementing the ADT program and supporting students' goal of transferring and earning a bachelor's degree:

  • Citrus College
  • Cuesta College
  • Diablo Valley College
  • Fresno City College
  • Glendale Community College
  • Long Beach City College
  • Moorpark College
  • Pasadena City College
  • CSU Fullerton
  • CSU Long Beach
  • CSU Bakersfield
  • CSU Sacramento

"Transfer should not be a maze. This year's honorees are stellar examples of what can be done when leaders work together. Our honorees have redefined what is possible and as a result, have helped thousands of students transfer and reach their educational goals," said Michele Siqueiros, president of the Campaign for College Opportunity.
